Are you sure...
...you're not simply a time traveler who's strayed into the 21st c. from the 15th or 16th? These recorder pieces are mercurial representations of the quiet and stately court music of the Renaissance and would be delightful dinner music then as now. The interplay of lines in this one are particularly pleasing as they fall upon each other, occasionally hitting that dissonant second only to trail off into perfect consonant harmony...all so pleasing to listen to. This particular one seems more in tune then some others you've posted (though I know that tuning is a real challenge with these instruments), and the timing/synchronization of the moving lines which you've recorded separately all sound like they are right on the money. Fine composition; exceptional playing; wonderful mix; delightful listen. Bravo.

This one is actually by JS Bach (as were my other recent pieces), which puts it in the first half of the 18th century.

Glad you liked it. Some of the previous ones were in awkward keys, so they may have been off in places. As far as playability goes, this is definitely one of my better ones.

listening to it now there are still a few off spots. Y'know, some of my postings here are really just testing the arrangement, and not for quality of the recording.

Prelude XVIII
I can imagine Bach sitting in his Honda listening to this on a Bose car stereo system. He would be chuffed! Thanks for bringing music of this genre, and calibre, to MJ. It is much enjoyed. Thanks, Peter.

Prelude XVIII
Wonderfully atmospheric. I think it should be the music for the car's commercial. Diametric oppositions. Lovely as always.

Bach To The Future
Yep, I think Paul got it right... you're a time traveler, delivering those mellow tones from long ago to the 21st Century.

Very nicely done rendition of Master Bach's work, providing a pleasant and relaxing listen. ;)
